Becoming a franchisee

Let’s start at the very beginning.

When activ digital marketing Franchise was first launch in 2008, we were one of the first companies to offer a low cost, fixed price digital marketing packages including websites that made accessing more business online affordable for small and start-up businesses.

As the internet has evolved and more competition is apparent, our franchisees are no longer just offering a single service. They are fully trained marketing consultants offering a comprehensive range of

services within their skill set, such as SEO, PPC, website design, mobile site creation, social media management, email marketing and graphic design to name just a few.

At fully competitive rates to the client with a local consultancy approach, we are really well placed to continue to offer forward thinking solutions into 2021 and beyond.
